Dear Henry, You live and you learn
First of all... Happy birthday to me! If you know me at all you know that my birthday is my favorite day!!! On to the post....
What did I learn during my 31st year?
I learned that I am a strong woman who handles life’s most difficult decisions with confidence. I learned that being a mom is everything they said it would be. I learned that I am not as important as I thought I was. I learned that love will survive. I learned that people will stand behind you when life is hard. I learned the true meaning of community. I learned that I have the best friends in the world. I learned about our families. I learned that not everyone has our best interest at heart. I learned how to speak my mind and stand up for my little family. I learned to not sweat the small stuff. I learned that no matter what I believe or anyone believes, the power of prayer and positive thinking will bring you back to life.
I learned that my husband is exactly who I thought he was when we were 18…. perfect!
I learned why I am here…. I know my life’s meaning. I see it every day in my husbands eyes, and in my son’s smile. 31 broke me down to my lowest lows but it also lifted me up higher then I thought possible. 31 was just the beginning! We are going to show 32 who’s boss!
Thank you for being on this journey with me!
